Baker disappointed but positive

Leopards’ coach Thomas Baker admitted that he was disappointed as his injury-hit side went down 108-97 at Thames Valley Cavaliers, on Saturday, but believes they are making progress.
The Big Cats produced arguably their best performance of the season against the big-spending Cavs but were unable to build on a good first half display as they slipped to a seventh straight league defeat.
“Having started the game well we are disappointed to not come away from TVC with the result we wanted” said Baker.
“Credit to Cavs they punished mistakes we made and made us chase the game in the last few moments. For us we have to know we are heading in the right direction, we are a different team now than we were at the beginning of the season and I am confident that if we keep up these positive performances and stay focussed on our game plan, we will come good.
“It will be good to start getting guys back to full fitness as the disruption to our lineups with 4 guys out at the moment, we must persevere in the direction we are heading as the results will come.”
